2.0 out of 5 stars Great picture and performance, but awful sound, 30 Jan. 2006
This review is from: Black Sabbath - Never Say Die [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
I'm very merciless when writting review of any music-featuring DVD that doesn't serve its primarily purpose well - THE SOUND.
What's the point in fact that this is one of rare official DVDs that feature full concert performance of Black Sabbath, that the setlist is impressive or that the picture quality is pretty good (although including some camera-artifacts and flashing), when the sound is terrible?
It is as some guy in the crowd was recording simply using only a microphone, connected to a pocket casette-recorder.
Even with most primitive knowing of audio editing tecniques, like equilising, producers of this DVD could've enhanced the sound immensely. But, no! Just put it quickest way you can in one black plastic box, and launch it on the market, counting on all those deluded Black Sabbath fans!
Two songs of this DVD (Symptom of the universe, Snow blind) are featured on "Black Sabbath: Story 1" DVD, where they have surpassingly better sound - not just volume. Which is a proof that you can do it, if you want - and if you respect your customers. This should've been a professionaly done DVD, and it even doesn't demonstrate a good intention to make things work, which sets it below any bootleg DVD. I could bear the fact that this concert was not pro-recorded back in 1978, but c'mon... this is clearly producer's flaw, since these 2 songs sound pretty well on the Story DVD.
I don't recommend this DVD at all. It sets me down as a customer, and as Black Sabbath fan.
